Video: ENLACES Kids Work on their Swing Movement

Reyes Gallardo

The ENLACES program has been teaching contemporary dance to at social-risk children for almost two years.

The progress we’ve seen has been amazing; not only in their technique, but also in their ability to create movement phrases.  When they started they had never taken Dance classes before, but from day one, we saw an incredible potential in each one of them.

Our dance classes usually start with a warm up exercise, followed by several technique exercises; and then a combination of movements.  We close with a short session of improvisation, where the kids get to create their own movements based on different instructions or rules.

This video replays one of the technique exercises we worked on last week to improve the kid’s swing movement and also movement with placed weight in their hands.
